's plan saying their second amendment rights are under attack. dan lothian is following all these developments in washington. what's the latest? >> the white house sees these recommendations as a way to hopefully curb gun violence and some of these things the president has backed before such as a ban on assault weapons. the president shortly after the connecticut shootings came out in support of that. so that's expected to be in the president's plan. also pressing for a ban on those high capacity magazines with more than ten rounds. that's the important note here. the aim here is to cut down on the ability of a gunman to go in and release up to 30 rounds in a short period of time. in addition, the president will be pushing for universal background checks so that everyone who buys aunder questi goes a criminal or mental health check. in addition the president wants to request funds be available for mental health illnesst to make sure there's money there for those things to be treated and to provide schools with the support they need for enhanced safety. the president is also

[ laughter ] >> bill: it was not a complete sentence. it was not even a thought. >> so he spoke but he didn't say a whole lot. >> bill: exactly. by the way, jon stewart spoke last night. this back and forth between jon stewart and paul krugman over the trillion dollar coin. paul krugman actually surprised us after coming out in support of the idea of minting the trillion dollar coin. jon stewart slammed him for it and said it was a dumb thing for a nobel prize winning economist to do. and then paul kru
weapons ban through. >> let's head to washington and the white house. dan lothian is there, so dan, is the nra right? >> well, you know, i'm not going to make any predictions about what congress may or may not do. as we have learned over the last few years, what i can say is that assault weapons ban does appear to be facing an uphill effort up on capitol hill and i think what's interesting is that the president, right after the mass shooting in connecticut came out and talked about, you know, putting his support behind efforts to reinstate the assault weapons ban and this had been the position of the white house since then but what was interesting last week when the vice president was rolling out what he said what are the top tier recommendations that he had been getting of meeting with several groups he did not mention that at all so there were questions about whether the white house itself may have felt that it was losing steam and there was not support for this on capitol hill. but shortly thereafter, a spokesman for the white house saying the president and the vice president ar

matter when americans are taken hostage along with others. >> cnn's dan rivers is in london. dan, there are so many different stories going around that the compound was attacked by the algerian military, that some of the hostages escaped, including one american. what are you hearing? >> well, i'm afraid it is a very confusing picture. the latest line we have from the british foreign office here in london confirming that the algerians have told them that there is an ongoing operation at this gas field suggesting that perhaps some sort of effort to go in. we know from the ministry of information in algeria they surrounded the terrorists with the hostages at the gas field, the troops were there. this sounds like they have gone in. there were widespread reports that helicopters were being used to attack the terrorist positions. now, the algerian foreign minister is clear on that saying the use of helicopters is wrong, it's a fantasy was their quote on that. in terms of the number of people that are being held hostage, we don't really have a clear idea, i'm afraid. the initial reports

the company private. joining us is our private ek wit at the expert from boston dan. >> good morning. >> so this would be a huge, huge 20 plus billion dollar transaction. do you think it can actually happen in this environment? >> no, i don't. now, never say never. stranger things have happened. you've got pension funds, maybe a big sovereign wealth fund comes in. but you'd have to be talking about gst 23 billion, maybe $25 billion deal altogether and i know that dell's got a lot of cash on the books that can kind of help take some of the risk off for the bankers who would have to provide the leveraged financing here. but not enough. a lot of that cash is held overseas so you'd have the big tax implication. it seems a little too big. i talked to a private equity investor yesterday not at tpg or silver lake and he said this is a real, real stretch to get done. >> we're talking about a market cap somewhere in terms of, with a premium in success of sst 20 billion. i don't know what number you want to put on that. you have about $11 billion that you said in cash, but you've got to bring some of

in this plane. dan springer is live in seattle. what is the immediate impact of all this, dan? >> reporter: martha, officially it is a crisis for boeing. canceled flights, upset passengers all across the world. within hours of the faa directive to ground all 787s, other countries followed suit. airlines are scrambling to get other aircraft to fill in for the dreamliners. in most case that is not possible. in san jose, two flights to tokyo have been canceled. two are in jeopardy. this nonstop route was opened friday to a lot of fanfare. the faa is grounding the 787 because of quote, a potential battery fire risk. it was triggered by an emergency landing of a 787 in japan due to apparent overheatings of a battery, second time in eight years. business leaders who worked for years getting new flights to asia. they don't fault the airlines. they're upset with boeing. >> this is a company that put passengers ahead of profits and made a wise decision to make sure that boeing works out these kinks before they put another plane up in the air. >> reporter: and 49 dreamliners were in service. united
here to the chamber of commerce and dan gallagher on the financial regulatory system. president obama unveils his proposal for reducing gun valent earlier this afternoon, featuring an assault weapons ban, a ban on high capacity magazines and a method to close loopholes in the background check system. here are some of his remarks at first, it's time for congress to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. [applause] the law already requires background checks to be wrong coming over the last 14 years, that has kept 1.5 million of them on the wrong people from getting their hands on a gun. but it's hard to enforce that law when as many as 40% of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check. it is not safe, it is not smart. it is not fair to responsible gun buyers or sellers. if you like to buy a gun, whether it is from a licensed dealer or private seller, you should be set at least have to show your not a felon or somebody legally prohibited from buying one. this is common sense. an overwhelming majority of americans agree with us on the need for
february 16th of last year. joining us on the newsline, dan is here. you've got a price target of $900 a share. which is almost double from where we are now. doesn't that price target seem a little tone deaf to what's going on with the stock? dan? >> yeah. absolutely. price targets in my opinion are talking points for what you think the value of the stock is, what the opportunity for the stock is. so yeah, to use the point, $900 valuation, you know, clearly that's not the direction other analysts are going right now. not the direction this market wants to go right now. but that's the direction this company's earnings are pointing to. all the hype happening in the last few weeks on apple is centered around the supply chain. none of it is demand. every demand that we see for apple products is very strong. there are areas of weakness in europe, smartphone penetration in the u.s. the market overall in the u.s. is -- not all the points are positive, but generally it's good. >> if you're saying demand is good, but the orders of components for the product for which demand is strong are down,

governor dan malloy in connecticut. >> in the midst of one of the worst days in our history, we also saw the best of our state, teachers and a therapist that sacrificed their lives protecting students. and when it comes to preventing future acts of violence in our schools, let me say this, more guns are not the answer. >> peggy noonan, newtown happened one month ago tomorrow. we're going to see and hear from vice president biden on tuesday. but we've been talking about this the last few weeks on the program. every time i talk to a group of senators, it does seem that there is not a lot of sharing of the president's sense of urgency on this issue. >> on capitol hill, you mean? well, look, guns are a very tough topic in america. i do think that if the vice president comes forward with some -- with his report on tuesday that looks at the whole violence problem in a way that includes guns and extended magazines and such, but also how we deal with the mentally ill in america and what to do if you have a 17-year-old kid who appears to be unstable, unviolent, there's a cultural angle to this, a
dan fifer is in front of her. you have the white house council and the deputy chief of staff but who is leaving. is there a problem with the president not pursuing more women in his cabinet? are you troubled by that? >> to me this almost seems swift voting. taking a person's strength and trying to create a weakness out of it. the president has about 50% of white house staff as women. if you look at his appointments to the court we have three women on the supreme court, two of them appointed by the president. >> big cabinet jobs, white men. >> the cabinett is not fully fleshed out. >> the big ones. >> please don't diminish cabinet level positions as some as big. for a domestic policy guy many cabinet positions are very important. one thing is that is disengenious to show the picture when 50% of the staff in the white house is women. this is a president who has expanded health care opportunities for women and stood up on his first legislation. if you look at his policies and practices he is changing the focus on the country. >> i think a lot of women would disagree this is swift voting
